When walking becomes uncomfortable, there’s usually a bigger problem at the root of it. From bad posture to flat feet, we see people that are in pain for a range of reasons that end up affecting their body and how they carry themselves. These initial problems can cause a lifetime worth of pain for someone if they aren’t taken care of, luckily, Santa Clara Chiropractic can provide you with the solution that you need to get your life back on a path of comfort. Here are a few of the instances where you should be considering orthotics as a solution.

Pronated Feet

This is the most common condition that people suffer from. Often confused for flat footed, pronated feet are what happens when your arch is falling. When a pronated foot isn’t taken care of the arch then begins to sink in, moving the leg, ankle and all the weight they carry, in. This ends up affecting your hips, back, nerves and muscles. Very specific orthotics are made for this issue, in order to help realign the body and have it standing as it should be.

Flat Feet

When you don’t have an arch at all, orthotics will provide you with the support that you need to hold your body upright and maintain a posture. People with flat feet experience pain in the ball and heel of their feet quite often, which can increase the risk of plantar fasciitis.

High Arch

While some people don’t have any arch at all, there are others that have too high of an arch. This strains the foot because the middle of the foot is never able to reach the ground. Being able to balance this will help make walking, standing and exercise much more comfortable.
